Dear Juice Film Clients, Friends, Crew, Suppliers and Cape Town’s greater film industry,
We hope you are all keeping well, safe and working!
Filming in South Africa is open although our borders remain closed.
We hope our borders will reopen soon and as soon as we have an official date for reopening and what that might look like, we will send an update.
For the immediate future all international shoots need to be shot remotely.
We believe that remote viewing in some shape or form will be around for a while and as such Juice Film has used this time to test the technology and communication channels surrounding remote shooting to make sure we are on top of our game!
We have successfully run 2 fully remote test shoots and the results have been amazing. We are ready to shoot remotely!
We invited one of our regular clients, Michael Levelle to join us on the remote shoot, we wanted an honest opinion and to understand more fully the experience of viewing remotely from as far off as London.
Here is what Mikey had to say:
“Earlier this year amid the horrendous, global pandemic and then enforced lockdown, the entire world and our beloved industry had been turned upside down and truly rattled. I was immensely flattered to have been invited by Juice Film to take part in a remote test shoot and not one simple in nature.
A test TVC involving remote locations, talent, action and tracking vehicles. Something we have all done before but not witnessed live from over 8,000 miles away, sat in a home office environment. Located in the U.K. I was shared both a Zoom link allowing access to a creative forum of live playback, feedback and commentary as well as a bird’s eye, BTS allowing me visual access to what and when certain things were happening on location. The shoot was flawless, only seconds in delay throughout and communication effortless.
I was, needless to say, very much reassured by this ‘new normal’ and would happily work with Juice Film again in a heartbeat.”
We continue to work wisely and keep the risks as low as possible to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
We are here should you have any queries or would like to chat to us.
We are ready to shoot!
Take care, be safe and stay healthy.
All our love,
Martin and Carmen
